Does it Get More Exotic Than Black Sand?

If I ask you the color of sand, you’ll probably say something like a light tan or perhaps even an ivory white. And this is the color most of us envision when we think about a beach – it’s “sand color”.  So when you see a black sand beach for the first time, it really blows you away. Beaches aren’t supposed to look like this!

If the looks blow you away, trust me the actual presence will.  A black sand beach doesn’t feel playful, like a typical beach.  The blackness gives it a serious, almost scary feel.  That said, it’s an experience you don’t want to miss the next time you’re in Hawaii – if you can find one!
